Work Requirements

Federal law requires non-disabled adults without kids to work at least 20 hours per week in order to receive food stamps. Work requirements have proven to be an effective way to help adults go back to work, more than doubling their incomes.

After implementing work requirements:

  • Enrollees go back to work and their incomes more than double
  • Their increased incomes more than offset lost benefits
  • Their time on welfare is cut in half
